                                                      We ordered the oysters - small and very sweet and special pepercorn half chicken with asparagus and a potato/squash puree. The chicken was tender, cooked in a wonderful peppercorn sauce. Our tarte tatin was absolute perfection and the service was attentive and warm. I thought charging for bread was a bit odd though.

                                                      Came in to celebrate group birthdays with bottomless brunch. Lobster Benedict and mimosas were incredible. Escargot was delicious. Will definitely be back!

                                                      Very good food, variety offerings on the menu. Great service; we were a party of seven - it was an ideal place for us in a charming setting.

                                                      First time at this local French spot. A fantastic experience all around. Mussels were perfect. Tuna tartare was lovely. and the bread is a MUST have.

                                                      Bacchus is an amazing restaurant with delicious French food. I took my sister there for her birthday and she loved it. My only negative comment is that they are short staffed ( I am sure it has to do with the pandemic), so it took a while to be seated despite having a reservation and it took a while for a waiter to take our order and of course for the food to arrive. The $38 brunch is fabulous! We spent more because we ordered several appetizers. Will be returning for dinner in a few weeks.

                                                      Great stop for early dinner before performance at BAM. Very pleasant and attentive staff. Enjoyed their varied menu options + would like to come again in warmer weather to sit on their patio. One of the best cappucinos I've had in a long time too.

The bottomless drinks deal is a good value, especially given the great quality of the food. (Waiter answered all our questions and kept the drinks flowing. 😊🥂) Will definitely be back.

                                                      On a little weekend away, first time diners. Loved the neighborhood vibe, and the food was outstanding!!! OMG… get the ravioli starter. Only 3 stars bc after we got starters , wine, then mains, No one stopped by our table. No checking on our food or wine. No water refills So weird. 30 minutes after we were done - no food, no wine left. I finally enticed a server over. She had been looking at us, but didn’t stop/ not our original server. She asked if we were waiting on dessert 😂 She took our order, we finished again and it took 20 more minutes to get the check. Flagged down a different server. SO disappointed- but the people as absent as they were were lovely and the food was a fabulous. But if the area will give another shot.

                                                      Some of the staff were rude but was a lovely meal and perfect for a pre theatre dinner. Would only come back if we were going to the theatre again.

                                                      Experience started off kinda rough. They were very busy so food took a long time, our apps never came until after the entrees, and I didn’t like the mussels but the restaurant manager made our experience so much better. He was so nice and comped what we didn’t like and the apps that came late. He then comped us two desserts and champagne. Because of how he treated us I would definitely come back. The ribeye, escargot, and crème brûlée were so good!

                                                      Delicious food, great wine, and awesome vibe. The service was a tad slow but extremely friendly and helpful once we ordered.

                                                      Food was excellent. We sat by a window that seemed to have an influx of ants congregating. We pointed it out and they took it seriously. Nice people and very good food that was reasonably priced for NY.

                                                      Service was effective and good. Overall, it was a good experience for a party of 7 but food is too expensive. The 2 Hours Bottomless Brunch is $38 is an extra $20 for unlimited drinks. A small piece of chocolat fondant is $10. The Avocado tartine is a fairly basic course for $21. Rooms are very noisy.

                                                      We love this restaurant and have been over 20 times. Unfortunately they seemed understaffed so we waited a long time to place our order and receive our food. That said we’ll continue going back because the food is so delicious.

                                                      The atmosphere of this place was really nice. The food was okay, nothing amazing, which made it not the best value. It does have a rotating menu. The menus I saw on Yelp were much appetizing than the one we had. I will try this place again (with a better menu) and hopefully it will be better as I want to really like this place but it just falls short.

                                                      Perhaps the best part was the fine service of our host and waitress. The meal was a little pricey but we didn’t have to choose the most expensive things on the menu. Both the duck and hanger steak were excellent! It was a good location for us to start the evening before going to Eastville Comedy down the block.

                                                      Seated very quickly when we arrived for our reservation. Good variety of French wines especially from the south and southwest. Our food (Black Sea bass for me, hangar steak for her) couldn’t have been better. Great ambiance and a great choice for pre-BAM performances.
